BRN 2008 - a review

The Bunte Republik Neustadt (german, colorful republic of Neustadt) is a 3-day musical event that occurs every year in June in Dresden's outer Neustadt in Saxony in Germany.

The Name Bunte Republik refers to Bundesrepublik (federal republic), as it was founded in 1990[...] Originally the BRN was meant as a kind of a free state, in this time of change. In the first years it even had a “fun”-government . Bunt means multi-colored in German.

During the festival, the streets are closed off in this area, the streets are filled with vendors selling food and drink, DJs playing music and live bands. It is attended by mostly the alternative youth. In 2006, more than 150,000 people attended, and over 100 bands played in the streets and parks of this area. In total, it presents more than 1000 artists.

All in all a beautiful weekend , the reason why BRN is one of the highlights since years, every year. Okay the weather could have been better.. a little bit more sun had been great ^^
All in all 100.000 people went there this weekend in my opinion TOO much. But unlike the last years it was quiet.. no big riot, no fights and very good atmosphere.

Well it was great and i am waiting for BRN 2009.
Here's a track which fits 100% to this weekend: Lützenkirchen - 3 Tage Wach (3 days awake)
